This theater operated from 1913 to 1923. It should not be confused with a later Globe Theater (q.v. as Telenews Theatre) in downtown Oakland.

Scandal in August 1919:

Enter Guilty Pleas in Obscene Case

Pleas of guilty were made by Harry Thomas and Earl A. Attlesey to the charge of violating the city ordinance against obscene pictures at the Globe Theater, 1422 Twenty Third Avenue, today before Police Judge George Samuels and each was fined $1.00. The charges of breaking the state law were dismissed against both men. It was alleged that the men were proprietors in the motion picture house that was raided while an alleged obscene film was being shownto a large number of men and boys. Wallace Asdy, the alleged operator, pleaded not guilty and his hearing was set for August 20, in Judge Samuels’ court. The same charge of breaking the state law against him was also dismissed.
